In Charlotte and Richard's wedding, everything was about the smallest details: even if it's a french Chateau, there were British inspiration everywhere. The guests made their toasts with vintage china cups instead of glasses, and the wedding favours were hand embroidered napkins for all the guests with their names. Angel took care of all the magical decoration of the chateau, including stuffed unicorns, walls covered with delicate butterflies, and pinneapple chandeliers.
"We'd always dreamed of hosting a destination wedding so it could double up as a holiday for all our guests. Then we discovered that some friends - Angel Adoree and her husband, the TV presenter Dick Strawbridge - were advertising their amazing French château as a big-day venue and ofering a three-day package. It was ideal.
I asked Angel, who was styling all my flowers, for simple, romantic arrangements. She covered the château in dozens of blooms, choosing shades of pink, white, green and purple. She was delighted when she found out the palette matched the ushers' bow ties. I'd originally wanted a blush-pink gown but fell in love with a champagne-coloured 'Tea' slip by Kate Halfpenny. I decided to dress my bridesmaids in soft pink instead. Dick - a finalist on Celebrity Masterchef in 2010 - catered the wedding and the food was amazing. He created a six-course tasting French/English menu for us that included onion and garlic soup, beetroot- cured salmon and sloe gin sorbet."
-Charlotte Mecklenburgh-Twitchen, the bride
